New Quiz: What Social Network Are You?

Which social network would be the most fun for you? Take my latest quiz to learn!

Do you enjoy social networking? Are you addicted to Facebook? Constantly on Twitter? Surfing Reddit? It may not seem like it at first, but I think all of us tend to enjoy one form of social networking or another, even if we’re not run of the mill Facebook addicts. Even hanging out on a forum or website with comments (like this blog) can be social networking.

I like some social networking, but for me, it tends to be more interest based then friends based. I love connecting with people who love quizzes on this blog and on various social networks. I also follow a few of my interests on social networks, like gardening, film, and personal finance. However, I will be the first to admit that I’m not a big fan of doing social networking with people I know in real life or have known. Maybe it’s just a quirk of mine, but I don’t really feel comfortable with the status competitions among people I know on places like Facebook (especially), Instagram, and Twitter. I find that to be kind of annoying 🙂 I rather connect over things I share with people!

New Quiz: What Domain Suffix Are You?

Are you more of a dot com or a dot org person? Take my quiz to find out!

Here’s a weird question for you… are you enough of a geek that you actually type in domain names by hand? I do! I know some people these days prefer to search for their favorite sites (many of you come to Blogthings simply by searching for “blogthings), but I still type them in the old fashioned way. For sites I might forget, I make a bookmark, but in the end, I do a lot of typing.

If you’ve been on the internet a while (and I know most of you have!), I’m sure you know all about the different type of domain names out there. Of course, the good old standby is .com, but there is a lot more to the internet than .com… we have .org, and .net for starters. Anyone is allowed to get those! And for specific types of institutions, you’ve got .edu and .gov… and then there’s all the country codes like .uk and .au, things like .biz and .info and so on! It’s hard to keep all the domain suffixes straight, but luckily there are a few main ones. I remember back before the internet was cool, people used to agonize over which domain suffix they should get 🙂

Do you see domain suffixes as having certain personalities? Is an org or edu website more your style? Take my latest quiz to find out! What Domain Suffix Are You?  Comment below and let me know what you got 🙂

Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):

  1. What do you get on What Domain Suffix Are You? Is it true for you?
  2. Do you have your own domain … or have you ever had one? What did you do with it?
  3. What do you spend the most time online doing? Working? Reading? Writing? Chatting?
  4. Take What’s Your Facebook Personality? What do you think of your result?

New Quiz: What Email Sign Off Are You?

How should you end your emails?

Do you spend a good portion of your day on email? I do, and I actually enjoy it. I think it’s fun to keep in touch with family and friends via email, and it sure beats a handwritten letter for convenience. (I do send handwritten letters sometimes though, especially to my grandma.) I also like to keep in touch with Blogthings quiz takers via email as well. It’s one of my favorite parts of the week when I get to email the winners of the Friday Five 🙂

Anyway, one of the funniest things to me is how everyone has a different email personality. I have some friends that have very short answers, and I have other friends who glory in long emails with words carefully chosen. And then there are always those friends who need a few nudges to respond to an email. I probably tend toward being a longer email writer type, although I try to keep it brief these days – as I know everyone is overwhelmed with too much email.

One thing I have noticed with my friends and acquaintances is that we all have a different way of signing off our emails. And of course, I think this has a lot to do with personality – at least email personality. I mean, there’s got to be some difference between the “XOXO” and “Sincerely” people, right?

Take my latest quiz, What Email Sign Off Are You? You will get what the perfect email sign off is for you and an analysis of your email personality. Do you keep it short and sweet? Or are your emails professional? Or are you like me and a fan of long, heartfelt emails?

Let me know what you get on What Email Sign Off Are You? Is it true for you? When I was doing some research for this quiz, some Blogthings fans on Facebook told me they don’t even use email anymore. Do you think email is on its way out? Let me know if you’ve been using it less lately.
